Definitely not, Boon.

The demo shows the various MA disciplines practised in Yoseikan. AFAIK they don't really do MMA (or "Rojak" MA - fyi for the non-Southeast Asian folk, rojak is a Malaysian fruit salad). Each disciplines (aikido, karate & kenjutsu) are taught separately. They may have gone back to tradition karate though as seen in the demo. Prior to PE karate (1900s) and later sports karate (1950s), karate was a complete system by itself.
